my ex-wife who is a doctor had the same but she did not want it to treat a homeless guy. so I keep an open mind regarding your story. meaning I don't really believe it right away
So now we know DocBastard's next blog entry! You can heal with sterilized maggots to eat the dead tissue, but the fact that bone is exposed and gangrene is set in, it may not be savable. The patient bill of rights state you can refuse treatment... did you refuse to treat the foot or did they walk away from the suggested treatment?
Once upon a time, maggots ,which are icky bad worms, were eating eating the person's toesies because the skin was sicky and dying. He went to the doctor, but then said he doesn't want help. Now the doctor is in biiiig trouble for not helping and the doctor is sad
Based on how he declined your treatment and decided to press malpractice charges over a decision he made, I doubt you were successful with getting him to sign a "refusal of treatment" form. If that is the case, I sure hope there is a section in his records where you mentioned he refused to sign it and were made aware of the risks of not immediate treatment. There is not much you can do but rely on detailed documentation to protect yourself.
